Mystery Portrait-Color Stage 3

I glazed a mixture of flake white (that dangerous lead filled stuff), and vermilion over the green shadows and bright red highlights.  He looks a bit pasty right now, but hopefully I can fix it.  I plan to to establish shadows the next go around and bring him back into 3-D.  I also glazed Prussian blue, (powerful stuff) and Titanium white over the background and his suit.  I mixed a little van dyke brown with the vermilion red and glazed his hair.  At this point, I frankly don't know how this going to turn out.
